Some day I will look back and laugh at this post. It is probably TMI, but I feel the need to document it for my families sake.
Yesterday started off with a bang. And by bang I mean BARF. Once again the the Barfing Bed Bandit stikes again. Jason got the first blow from Graden. All over his back and arm. He was a trooper and just laid still so I could jump up and get a towel. Graden seemed fine after that. No fever, happy. So I got him his chocolate milk. It did not even have a chance to curdle before it ended up on my bathroom mat.
In the midst of all this I had a horrible feeling that I had forgotten something. I could not figure out what? It was when I was doing my first load of barf laundry that it hit me. Well, not really hit me, but as I quickly saw the water stop filling up my washer it dawned on me. "Did I pay the water bill?" Um, that would be a no. They had shut off our water. I had forgotten to pay it the night before. Stupid Biggest Looser. I wanted to get home to see it. Grrrr.... totally spaced it. My bad.
So I start to gather up the boys to head over to City Hall to pay it. Then I get sick. And not throwing up either. Did you know that when you have no water your toilet won't flush? You can piece together that puzzle. :(
I wait a while and decide to head out. (Our computer has a virus so it is at a friends house being fixed, so I could not use it to pay the bill)(As for this post, Jason hooked up our OLD GHETTO computer that takes 45 minutes to do anything) I have Graden covered in a towel, just in case. He barfs on Main St. Not bad. So by the time the girls get home from school our down stairs bathroom is officially a BIO HAZARD. Graden and I had both been sick several times by then.
Later in the day I sent a message to Jason. I am sure he appreciated the detail in which I laid out my day. He text back and said he was sorry. I wasn't. I was really proud of myself. I had handled it all with grace in my opinion. It was truly a laughable situation. A perfect storm of calamities all wrapped into 6 hours of a bad comedy.
I feel better today, Graden is not. He still has a fever, up chucked this morning, but is really sweet. Just lounging around and asking for more water. I love that boy.
I also left out another major story line that included a friend. I need to get back to my sicky. And Jason needs his lunch delivered!
